Toronto musician Mike Simpson – known for his work with Godstopper, Ayahuasca and Column of Heaven – is apparently a jack of all trades. His past musical endeavors have embraced the noisy, the abrasive and the metallic, but with his Jack Moves project, Simpson dabbles in hip hop and electronica.
Inspired by the live looping expertise of comedian Reggie Watts, Simpson has been crafting danceable tunes as Jack Moves since 2014. The project sees Simpson creating glitchy, pop hits and eccentric hip hop numbers all with the use of his voice, and topped off with surprisingly potent MCing skills.
We at Svbterranean are excited to share the first official release from Jack Moves, I Been Working. This EP, which is officially out today, captures the spirit of Simpson’s live performances and delivers four catchy tracks guaranteed to get the head bobbing or other body parts moving. Check out the EP after the break.
